In the coming months, you may receive a request for claims information from Chickasaw Nation Industries. Please be advised that this is a legitimate request and is part of the federally mandated Payment Error Rate Measurement Program (PERM). PERM measures improper payments in Medicaid and the State Children’s Health Insurance Program and produces state and national-level error rates for each program. Chickasaw Nation Industries has contracted with CMS to conduct an audit of MaineCare claims and will be reviewing claims for the FFY17 time period (10/1/16 – 9/30/17). Per MaineCare policy, providers who are contacted by Chickasaw Nation Industries are required to respond to their requests for information and provide the necessary documentation so they can conduct their reviews. It is critical that providers respond to requests for documentation in a timely fashion; records that are submitted late will result in Maine being charged with an error.
